Mary the Blessed Virgin Comments

The Mother, of God, Mother of Jesus, wife of St. Joseph, and the greatest of all Christian saints. The Virgin Mother “was, after her Son, exalted by divine grace above all angels and men”. Mary is venerated with a special cult, called by St. Thomas Aquinas, hyperdulia, as the highest of God’s creatures. The principal events of her life are celebrated as liturgical feasts of the universal Church. Mary’s life and role in the history of ... Continue Reading

    I am truly grateful for all the things my Mother Mary has done for me. The small things and the major ones, whenever I ask for her intercession my prayers are always answered, even those that seem impossible and would require a miracle, but yet they are still answered. I love you so much, my holy Mother, please continue to pray for me your child that I may always receive God's graces and blessings and that I may grow in your likeness, to be as holy as I can be, and to grow in all your virtues. I truly need you help now that I am applying for university, pray that I may get into the course that I want, if it be the will of God. I just need this last chance and I promise I will use this chance to bring honour and glory to God's name. I know I don't deserve this and it would require another miracle for me to get into my dream course, but I believe wholeheartedly that if you should pray for me, I cannot be refused and my prayers shall be answered. I love you so much, my other. Please pray for me, thank you!

    More than any other subject -- ( aside from one on Jesus ! )-- this one has come home to my heart. It is on my spiritual Mother -- Mary . All those who eventually end up with the Father in His House will also recognize this life of faith as being one of the divine family of Mary by participation--- as saint Peter told us, ( 2nd epist. ch.1 v.4) showing it as a participation in God's own Divinity. (see the Catechisme of the Catholic Church # 460 ).Mary as the Queen of Heaven possesses a greater participation of God's Divinity than any other creature.

    I think that the *Blessed Virgin Mary* was a Real Person and that She was kind and
    sweet to everyone and that people loved her when she was Alive and all the small kids
    Men and Women , young and old loved her very deeply and was well-respected and that
    she was an established lady of her time as well today and tomorrow! So, God Bless the
    Virgin Mary and her Lineage and descendants!~ : ) Good-Bye.!

    I always see the dimension of saint Joseph in the life of Mary as not sufficiently brought out -- As saint John Eudes would say : the created trinity composed of Jesus,Mary and Joseph for God`s Glory is rarely completely manifested. Saint Joseph on this day of Mary`s Conception allows us to see all the moreso how much she is greater than his role as her spouse . He , as saint Bernard said , is the human Father of God ; but Mary is much more : she is God`s human Mother !!

    i, believe in God, i believe in the message of the pope and i believe in the Queenship of Virgin Mary. God did not finish speaking in the bible he continue to speak all the time to his people an inspired messages.

    Sebastian - You are advocating a Nestorian view. The Nestorian heresy is as follows:

    Those who supported the Nestorian heresy considered Mary the Christotokos rather than the Theotokos, and believed that she bore Jesus in human form. Those who consider Mary the Theotokos believe she bore the divine Jesus.

    Nestorius and his teachings were eventually condemned as heretical at the First Council of Ephesus in 431 and the Council of Chalcedon in 451.

    In other words, friend, the Catholic Church anticipated your argument by more than 1500 years!

    There is plenty to criticise the Catholic Church for, but her doctrines and dogmas are very well thought-out, and very well debated, often for hundreds of years before they become doctrine or dogma.

    You can read more on the life of Our Blessed Mother in the book "City of God" by Blessed Mary of Agreda. Mary of Agreda was a mystic from the 16th century. She was shown the entire life of Mary with much input concerning Jesus. Some of the language is a bit flowery, but this book really opened my eyes to just how awesome Mary is and filled in small bits about the Gospels.

    She's the one seated at Christ's right hand. In the old testament, David's mother was the queen. She was his advisor and was the intercessor between the people and David. The English translation and Western idea of queen changed the concept. People interpret this part of David's life to be just like Western concepts of royalty. We apply our way of thinking of a queen to the Old Testament, but in actuallity, the queen was the mother of the king, seated at his right hand. Mary is that queen in Heaven.

    Why are so many people mad at Mary for being known as the mother of God? It's kinda funny. To me it makes sense though. If you believe in the holy trinity, you believe that God exists as three persons, but is still one God, meaning that God the Son and God the Holy Spirit have exactly the same nature. In other words since Mary gave birth to Jesus, she is technically the mother of God. Anyway, I am going for confirmation soon and was thinking about Mary. She is just so interesting, and mysterious!

    From the early times of Christianity, the Blessed Virgin Mary, because of Her great virtues, Her
    help to the needy, and Her preeminent role in God's plan for the salvation of mankind, held a
    distinct position of admiration and love among Christians.
    The honoring of the Holy Virgin began from the time when the Archangel Gabriel greeted Her
    with the words: “Rejoice, O Blessed One, the Lord is with Thee! Blessed art Thou among
    women!” announcing to Her the mystery of the conception of the Son of God. A few days later
    with the words “Blessed is the Fruit of Thy womb,” the righteous Elizabeth saluted the pure
    Virgin. St. Luke explains in his Gospel that the Holy Spirit revealed to Elizabeth that Mary had
    become the Mother of the Lord, the promised Savior of mankind (Luke 1:28-42).
